A disproportionate number of converts to the dark enlightenment seem to come from a libertarian background.
Art Carden may or may not be a dark enlightenment sleeper agent. It’s getting hard to tell.
He argues that Bayes’ Theorem (which a certain sort of libertarian has a particular affinity for) would suggest that Chechnans aren’t terrorists. I confess to having lost the ability to understand his arguments, which conclude,
If p(Muslim|Terrorist) is 95.3%–the number from Easterly’s post; I haven’t verified it, but for the sake of the argument, let’s assume it’s accurate–and there has been a terrorist attack, then yes, the terrorist was probably a Muslim. Some commenters are absolutely right to point this out, but this doesn’t mean we should be suspicious of Muslims in immigration policy, security policy, or day-to-day life.
Facts, apparently, don’t have consequences. At least certain facts.
And HBDChick, who you should read in full.
On a side note, it’s apparently possible to become a citizen while under FBI surveillance. I guess the FBI is a fan of Bayes’ Theorem.
Anyway, events happen. Someone needs to be able to explain:
A misfithyper-Sunni haarpfucker and his average younger brother blew up the capital of the Brahmin caliphate—and the fleas who ride the rats’ asses saw in them Allah’s response to their prayer, their prayer that the bombers be white Americans. White American Salafi Chechens from Kyrgyzstan; what a world we live in! Would Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have called himself white? We may never know; certainly we can’t just ask the boy—a boy of 19; what a world we live in!—but his ‘nigga’-peppered Twitter suggests that doubt is reasonable, and we can only hope against the ways of the world that those small men who live within earshot of the fleas will see.
And it ain’t gonna be libertarians.
